Uganda Cranes’ midfielder Michael Azira and his colleagues at Montreal Impact will have a go again at restoring their winning ways when they face DC United in the Major Soccer League.

Impact comes off a goalless draw against New York City – their first draw this season – while DC United brutally lost 4-0 to Los Angeles FC in their previous outing.

If Azira starts, this will be his sixth game making the starting IX, after playing out their last outing at the Yankee Stadium in New York.

DC United have just a 33.33% win rate against Montreal, by far their worst against any Canadian opposition.

A 5-0 rout in 2018 was their first home win against the Impact since 2015, while just two of the last 11 overall H2H meetings have produced three or more total goals.

Meanwhile Montreal have won their last three away matches when also leading at half-time.
